“People Who Feel Good about Themselves, Produce Good Result”

It’s about the man who try to find what he called and Effective Manager.

After I have read The One Minute Manager, here are some important points summarized in this precious book.

One Minute Goals: Summary

1. Agree on your goals.

2. See what good behavior looks like.

3. Write out each of your goals on a single sheet of paper using less than 250 words.

4. Read and re-read each goal, while requires only a minute or so each time you do it.

5. Take a minute every once in a while out of your day to look at your performance and,

6. See whether of not your behavior matches your goals. (Page.19)

After a young visitor has finished talking with the effective manager,  he approached effective manager’s second staff to make sure what the manager said was right. He learned about One Minute Praising

1. Tell people up front that your going to let them know how they are doing

2. Praise people immediately.

3. Tell people what they did right- be specific.

4. Tell people how good you feel about what they did right, and how it helps the organization and other people who work there.

5. Stop for a moment of silent to let them feel how good you feel

6. Encourage them to do more of the same

Next morning the young boy went to meet the third staff of One Minute Manager. At this time, he noted the third secret of One Minute Manager. It’s about one minute reprimands.

1. Tell people beforehand that you are going to let them know how they are doing and in no uncertain terms.

2. Reprimand people immediately.

3. Tell people what they did wrong—be specific.
4. Tell people how you feel about what they did wrong—and in no uncertain terms.
5. Stop for a few seconds of uncomfortable silence to let them feel how you feel.

6. Shake hands, or touch them in a way that lets them know you are honestly on their
side.
7. Remind them how much you value them.
8. Reaffirm that you think well of them but not of their performance in this situation.
9. Realize that when the reprimand is over, it’s over.
